Red Slime (Cyano Bacteria) happens in all tanks, especially in new set-ups. Red Slime starts as small patches and spreads to cover sand, rock and coral. Once the rock or coral are covered, the red slime algae will inhibit gas exchange and nutrients to the organism, causing their death. Once Red Slime algae settles in your aquarium, it has already started to destroy your corals.
Red Slime growth happens when several factors are present, including prolonged or excessive light (needed for photosynthesis), excess nutrients (over feeding- producing ammonia, phosphates and nitrates), unfiltered water and poor water circulation.
Dr. G's Red Slime Controller will help reduce (and may eradicate) the problem, but the factors described above must be corrected with increased water flow, better filtration and use of a good protein skimmer. Do not overfeed your fish.
For Phosphate removal, we recommend using Dr. G's Phosphate Remover.
Note: Corals that have already been irreparably damaged by the slime algae-beyond a point of being able to recover-will inevitably die off, even with the use of this product.
Directions: Mix the entire contents with enough aquarium water to fill the bottle 2/3 full. Shake well until totally dissolved.
Shut down your protein skimmer, UV light and Ozonizer and remove activated carbon. Add dissolved solution. During treatment, use an air pump to maintain oxygen level in your tank. Add the entire mixed solution to the tank. Wait 48 hours to re-start systems that were shut down for treatment.
Change 20% of tank water 48 hours after using this product (the Protein Skimmer may foam profusely due to dead slime bacteria removal).
